Polaris Radar: The Last Line of Defense

Ransomware is getting increasingly more sophisticated, and attacks are getting harder and harder to avoid–even when strong security measures are in place. In fact, over 70% of organizations were infected by ransomware after it successfully bypassed their detection and prevention measures.* Ransomware rapidly mutates into new variants, making it extremely difficult to detect with traditional signature-based approaches. That’s why we built Radar, a Polaris app that increases resilience in the face of cyber attacks. Rubrik’s approach includes multiple layers of defense, such as anomaly detection, data analysis, and instant recovery.   Dealing with Ransomware No one likes having their possessions held for ransom and being blackmailed into paying cash for something that is already theirs. Typically, a data center is infiltrated undetected via an endpoint device from a phishing attack that will begin to rapidly encrypt files based on various criteria. At this point, the victim can either pay the ransom or lose their data.

BUT…before the Rubrik presentations, we loved watching a brand new company launch from stealth – Droplet Computing. It brought a tear to our eyes as we remembered how we ended our own stealthy ways not even three short years ago. Chris Wahl kicked off our sessions with an introduction to Rubrik, our vision for the future, and recent announcements, including Rubrik Datos IO and the new Polaris SaaS platform. His intro helped set the stage for the upcoming presentations, which was appreciated by Tim Crawford and Scott D. Lowe. Next, we moved into a deep dive and demo of CloudOut, our long-term retention technology…
